Exile
Author:
The book not only tells the romantic story of a Jewish lawyer in love with a Palestinian law professor wrongly accused of a capital crime, it ALSO educates. As with any conflict there are always two points of view in a matter. In my opinion, Exile would be an excellent book to read for anyone who honestly wants to understand more about the Jewish/Palestinian conflict.
David Wolfe seems to have everything. A good job as a lawyer in San Francisco, engaged to a wonderful woman, he also is being slated to run for Congress. But with one phone call that about to all change.

Thirteen years before, Hana Arif a Palestinian woman studying in the United States, met David at Harvard where he was a law student. They had a love affair for several months but she returned to the Middle East against David's protests and married a fellow Palestinian. Now her phone call to David is to say she is visiting the states with her husband and their 12 year old daughter. When she asks David to meet them for lunch, he is hesitant realizing his former feelings for Hana.
A few days after David hears from her, the visiting Israeli Prime Minister is killed by a terrorist attack and Hana is implicated through hearsay and circumstantial evidence. Hana asks David to represent her, against his better judgment he agrees, destroying his political career and his engagement. David has to travel to Israel to seek important evidence as the case possibly involves a larger conspiracy.

This was an excellent novel which doesn't take sides, but tries to explain the plight of both the Jews and the Palestinians. The plot was excellent and timely. More importantly, the author clearly researched both sides of the Israeli - Palestinian conflict. His ability to make the reader sympathize with both sides shows a unique writing style.
The book not only acknowledges why and how the Jewish people have felt victimized and oppressed BUT ALSO the Palestinian point of view. BOTH sides have sustained needless suffering, pain and death of its innocents.

The author himself states in his final comments how he has tried to be fair and objective while realizing at the same time there would always be someone who would feel offended.
There are very complex issues involved here. You pity those who try to achieve compromise in the midst of all this conflict. The interweaving of a personal story with the facts of the Israeli Palestinian conflict make this book dynamic and moving.

David Wolfe's life is approaching an exhilarating peak: a successful San Francisco lawyer, he's about to get married and has been primed for a run for Congress. But when the phone rings and he hears the voice of Hana Arif--the Palestinian woman with whom he had a passionate affair in law school--he begins a completely unexpected journey. The day after Hana's call, the Prime Minister of Israel is assassinated by a suicide bomber; soon, Hana herself is accused of being the mastermind behind the murder. Now David must make an agonizing decision: Will he, a Jew, represent Hana--who may well be guilty--or will he turn away a woman he can never forget?       
 
Ultimately David's guest takes him to Israel and the West Bank, where, in a series of harrowing encounters, he learns that appearances are not at all what they seem. Culminating in a tense and startling trial with international ramifications, Exile is that rare audiobook that both entertains and enlightens. At once an intricate tale of betrayal and deception, a moving love story, and a fascinating journey into the lethal politics of the Middle East, this is Richard North Patterson at his most brilliant and engrossing.
